Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, often talked of the Ancient
Ones in his writings, much as Confucius did. They were
wise and knowledgeable, human beings that were as gods
powerful, good, loving, and all-knowing. These ancients apparently
lived in a secret, remote area of China or Tibet, guarding the
wisdom of the ages.
604BC, Lao Tzu wrote the book which is still perhaps the most
famous Chinese classic of all time the Tao Te Ching. When he
finally left China, at the close of his very long life, he journeyed
to the west, to the legendary land of His Wang Mu, to seek the
headquarters of the Ancient Ones, the Great White Brotherhood.
It was as he was leaving, at one of the border posts of China,
that a guard persuaded him to write down the Tao Te Ching, so
that Lao Tzus wisdom would not bee lost.
Ancient Masters were subtle,
Mysterious, profound, responsive
The depth of their knowledge is unfathomable.
Because it is unfathomable,
All we can do it so describe their appearance.
Watchful, like men crossing a winter stream.
Alert, like men aware of danger.
Courteous, like visiting guests.
Yielding, like ice about to melt
Simple, like uncarved blocks of wood.
-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching (Chapter 15)
No one ever
heard of Lao Tzu again, and it presumed that he made it to the
Land of His Wang Mu. His Wang Mu is another name for the popular
Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, the Merciful Guardian
and Queen Mother of the West. Her land, traditionally
located in the Kun Lun mountains, was known as the Abode
of the Immortals and The Western Paradise.
